Fast Times at Final TT
There were some fast times once again recorded at the final event in the Marg Stoffers midweek TT series on Wednesday evening in Busselton. It was great to see a good contingent of Busselton riders including Jamie who is now a Busselton local.
Brian wasn’t sure Garry was looking too comfortable at the end of the first section but he continued on past the finish line determined not to let the cramps get the better of him this week. He actually looked a lot better on the return leg and put in a very respectable time of 30.43. Steve Camarri was closing in although not on his best form this week but still riding well to record 29.00.
With no TT bars new member Phil Magee did well to stop the clock at 28.19 while Busselton President Wayne Flynn is looking very fit and fast these days and recorded a personal best of 27.17.
Young Ben Hastie had the new go fast skin suit on and took a huge chunk off his previous best in recording an impressive 25.48. He still had to lower his colours to the super impressive Erin who despite comments that she had not been riding much the last couple of weeks was only a second off her previous best.
Jamie Coutts looked like he had hit the wall in the last km or so after a very fast start but can still be well pleased with 25.55. Lee Scurlock was not sporting any TT gear and was not too far behind in 26.18 showing good form ahead of Pemberton. Fellow Fat Duck representative Heath Townsend was having his first ride with the club and put in a strong effort to record 29.40.
Bryce Lanigan was once again out for another Pb and as he has done all season put in a great ride stopping the clock at 24.27.
In the 12km event there was a bit of stirring on the start line with Isabella expressing concern that her guardian Nat was not up to the task and may not be able to keep up. Unfortunately the super competitive younger sibling came off second best tonight clipping a kerb and taking a tumble. No doubt the grazes wont slow her down heading into the weekend racing at Pemberton however.
Meanwhile Courtland who has been the other big improver of the season once again showed great form in recording another personal best. Very impressive riding all season from the youngster.
Many thanks to all who have supported the series. We will be awarding prizes to the most improved over the season at our end of summer function. Huge thank you to Brian Kennedy who has helped out each week and to Robbie Commons who brings the drinks and to ATTA for their support with the uploading of times into their database.
All the best for everyone heading to Pemberton this weekend.
